No long run for me this past weekend; I had my run test instead. I’m sure that you’ve heard me bitching, I mean talking about these tests before, they are just a way to give my coach a good picture of where I am at in my fitness and re-set my heart rate zones if necessary. I usually don’t like them because they hurt, but this one honestly wasn’t too bad. My coach said that this was my best test ever!
I think that it was my best test because I downloaded the song “I Will Survive” onto my IPod and played it over and over while doing the test. Lady GaGa’s songs made an appearance too. Whatever works.
Here I am with my brand new foam roller. I have molested the one at the gym for far too long. I felt dirty every time I used the one at the gym because I have seen people using that thing in ways that I won’t speak of on this blog, so I went and purchased my own. Rick couldn’t believe that I paid $20 for the thing and asked why I just didn’t get a piece of foam at Home Depot. I told him that this was weighted foam and that it was different. Of course, I got the old eye roll from him. Non runners…geesh.
I was given the Gorgeous Blogger Award by Molly of I'm A Sleeper Baker. I have to list 6 things about myself.
1.) I love to read. I would much rather sit down with a good book then watch TV any day.
2.) Munchos potato chips are my favorite chips EVER. My mom used to get them for me as stocking stuffers instead of candy when I was little. Anyone heard of them?
3.) I love to cook and would love to take cooking classes one day. (I didn’t say I was a good cook, just that I loved it). I love coming home from work and making dinner.
4.) I love the color pink. When I was little, I always wanted to live in a pink house and drive a pink car. I still love pink, but now I’m more of a hot pink person and I don’t want to live in a pink house. I also wear mostly black and don’t have too many pink clothes. Hmmm.
5.) I hated coloring as a kid, but I used to sit for hours on end drawing my own paper dolls. One time, I drew the whole series of the Little House on the Prairie girls. I had Mary and Laura from the time they were little kids up until they were adults.
6.) My grandma, mom, and sister love doing crafts and making crafty things. My grandma even used to have her own craft store. I would rather eat dog crap (not that I would ever do it) then spend any time doing anything crafty. How are people who are in the same family so different? I am the only one who loves running.
Ok! Slomo of Desert Rat Runner also tagged me to list 10 things that make me happy. I accepted that challenge and will update that one in my next post. My brain can only think of so much in one sitting.
Ok, work has been crazy, so I'm catching up on blogs tonight! See you soon.
